Free performances, movies and concerts entertain and engage By Kevin Boyle

The blankets are laid out on the grass, chairs are set up for the perfect view of the stage, ice cold drinks are in the cooler, and to-go containers are brought in from various eateries in town. This is what I like to call, “the Seaside dinner.” This impressive logistical feat is one of my favorite things about producing events in our little beach town, and occurs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the summer months.

Live children’s theater performances, movies under the stars and music by bands from throughout the South — are all prime opportunities for this picnic set up. One day you are laughing at the antics of the talented actors from The Seaside Repertory Theatre and the next day you are wiping away tears from the first 10 minutes of Pixar’s “Up.” Or you find yourself asking for an autograph from a band you had never heard of from Knoxville that played an amazing concert.

Watching families and friends new and old interact drives the mission of our programming. We want to add the icing to the beach vacation cake. Our performances are meant to entertain, engage and create lasting impressions of Seaside for our guests.

Whenever you set up your “Seaside dinner” this summer, we hope you enjoy our events as much as we enjoy putting them together for you.

All events are sponsored by the Seaside Merchants.
